My review of Sweet Peril

Sweet Peril (Sweet #2) by Wendy Higgins 
Release Date: April 20, 2013
Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon | The Book Depository

Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy, #2)Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things. 

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Sweet Peril is the romantic and edgy follow-up to Sweet Evil that Kaidan fans will adore. 

Slightly shorter than Sweet Evil, but just as exciting, Sweet Peril picks up quite a while after the ending to the previous book. Anna is working when she has to and has been Kaidan free for months, but she can't stop thinking about him. When a long lost message from the angels comes into light, Anna has to travel country to country gathering the Nephilim who may support them in the future. At the same time of trying to give them hope, Anna has to sort out her feelings for Kaidan who may or may not feel the same way.

I thought that Sweet Evil was extremely unique and captivating, I found that Sweet Peril was just as romantic and steamy, but lacking in the action department, which I'm sure will be made up in the last book, but I can't help but wish a little more happened in this one.

I was having a Kaidan withdraw for about half the book before he started reappearing frequently. Throughout the book I was just thinking, "Kaidan, where are yooou?" He's changed a lot since we last saw him in Sweet Evil; he's hotter, sweeter, and dare I say, more mature? He's finally made up his mind about how he feels about Anna, and about time too! I can't wait to see what path their relationship takes in the conclusion.

Sweet Peril is full of romance that fans will adore, but also brings in some new characters to keep the story interesting. I cannot wait to find out how it all ends in the explosive conclusion, Sweet Reckoning. I need it.
